Did you know that the Caulfield Racecourse Reserve is open for everyone to use?

The Reserve is owned by the Victorian Government and looked after by the Caulfield Racecourse Reserve Trust (the Trust). The Trust is proposing a designated area where dogs can run around off-leash. This would give dog owners a great place to exercise their pets and make the Reserve more enjoyable for everyone.

Here in Glen Eira, we love dogs. In fact, we have more than 8,800 dogs registered across our City and they love to get out and about for walks.

Right now, officially the whole Reserve is a dog on-leash area because no areas within the Reserve have been declared off-leash (although some people currently use small areas of the Reserve as unofficial off-leash areas).
